Fort Punta Christo – 19th century Fort


Fort Punta Christo was built at the end of the 19th century by the Austrians to defend their main naval port. Situated at 45 meters above sea level, it offers a breathtaking view of the entrance to the Bay of Pula, its breakwater, as well as Muzil and Brijuni on the other side. The fortress is surrounded by a deep ditch and there are three entrances leading to the fort. Inside the fort are three courtyards through which you can enter the underground areas of this magnificent structure. The fortress has as many as 270 spaces, covering an area of over 10,000 m2. Thanks to a group of enthusiasts of the “Punta Christo” association, the fortification was cleaned so that various programs could be organized. The most recent one was Halloween party. During the summer it is the venue for cultural programs, concerts, exhibitions… If you are in the vicinity of Fort Punta Christo, don’t miss one of the most beautiful fortifications of Pula.
